    There are some slight dimensional differences in 308 and 762x51 very slight, I have fired over 2k rounds of winchester commercial 308 (thanks to OLIN)in my imbel receivered stg58 in the past 15 years and have never noticed a single problem and I have used 308 dies to reload 7.62x51 for over 20 years and havent had any problems, LOTS of folks will tell you this is the wrong thing todo but it has worked fine for me. The service lif of the FAL according to The FAL (a book) is 40k rounds before the receiver stretches to the end of its service limit

    The problem comes mostly from firing commercial .308 in rifles converted from 8mm to 7.62NATO, especially Spanish FR-8s and FR-7s.
